Those three little words are probably the most dangerous in my vocabulary, but ever since I got absolutely wiped by customs for ordering a shed load of Marc Jacobs from the US, I’ve been slightly put off from ordering from one of my fave US department stores. But, because Nordstrom have a clever knack of getting the most amazing beauty exclusives, the temptation is back.

Shu Uemura Eye & Cheek Palette, $65. All these shades are totally right for me; it’s a palette I’d use over and over again.




Chanel Quatuore Boutons de Chanel, $65. And again, these are brown eye perfection.


And, although I don’t want one, am intrigued by these MacInABox things; all the MAC make up you need to create a look and at a cheaper price than it would be to buy them individually. The one shown is Frisky Girl and each MAC Look In A Box contains instructions on how to get the look (Except no foundation and nothing for brows. And no eyeliner…oh dear, it’s more like half a look in a box).

PS: Thanks to an intrepid reader (see comment box), MAC have as a condition of sale for these boxes that they are not shipped out of the USA. Gee, thanks MAC. That was nice to exclude the rest of the world.
